Family Court and the Reality of Grief, Loss and Trauma for Children and Families.
Here is the url for blogtalk radio tonite:
Tune in tomorrow October 9, at 8 pm EST as I will be a guest host on "For Our Kids," an hour and a half bi-weekly show heard internationally.
***SPECIAL TOPIC Night - "For Our Kids" - Deborah Maddison, and Tracy Baxter, Canadian activists from British Columbia, will welcome Dan Brewington from Norwood, Ohio, as our US guest host. Dan was one of the subjects of the "Divorce Corp" documentary. The three will lead this evening's discussion about the Rights of Children and Families in North America. Tonight we are covering a very sensitive topic, "Family Court and the Reality of Grief, Loss and Trauma for Children and Families." It should be noted that although we have 5 different individuals who have different stories to tell, the outcome, and the trauma they suffered, is remarkably similar. These are all people who were in need of compassion and understanding. At the most vulnerable time in their lives, and with literally everything at stake, they were instead completely victimized by our judicial system. Going through the system while in a state of acute emotional distress is much like how Prisoners Of War suffer in battle. In fact, the judicial system has become such a hostile environment that Litigation has actually been referred to by lawyers as the last Blood Sport in America. We will also be discussing something the system seems to forget, which is the grief and trauma suffered by children who have been ripped from a loving parent, and how this affects them for the rest of their lives. The best interests of the system are NOT the best interests of the child. ~~ Every two weeks a new THEME will be presented in this series, with frequent special guests speaking from their own experience. ~~
